Which? comments as government set to miss target for EV chargers

 
Sue Davies, Which? Head of Consumer Protection Policy, said:
 
“It’s disappointing that the government currently looks set to miss this target, especially as Which? research found that one of the main barriers preventing drivers from switching to electric vehicles was concerns about a public charging infrastructure that is falling short.

“We found that many drivers struggle to find reliable charging points in good working order, or are unable to rely on adequate charging points close to their homes or to get them through a long journey.

“Charging should be easy, reliable and seamless to support people making the move to an electric car. The government must quickly improve the consumer experience of using public charging networks so that drivers feel confident making the switch to an electric vehicle when they are ready.”
